Pernod Ricard has trumpeted a return to sales growth in its first quarter, despite a "mixed performance" in Europe.

Pernod Ricard's sales inched up in its first quarter, with full-year profits forecast to rise

Sales in the three months to the end of September inched up by 1% year-on-year, coming in at EUR2.04bn (US$2.59bn). The company's Asia-Rest of the World region posted a 5% rise in sales, at EUR855m while Europe's performance, a slide of 2% to EUR652m, was described by Pernod as mixed.

Sales in the Americas were flat, coming in at EUR530m.

The overall Q1 performance comes on the back of a 7% fall in full-year sales, announced in August.

CEO Pierre Pringuet:

“Pernod Ricard’s return to growth in the first quarter illustrates the group’s resilience in a difficult context. We are confident in the strength of our portfolio and distribution network. The roll-out of project Allegro will contribute to strengthening our operational efficiency.”

Outlook

"Our 2014/15 guidance is organic growth in profit from recurring operations between +1% and +3%.”

Last week, Pernod's main rival, Diageo, reported a 1.5% dip in Q1 sales, a performance that the firm said was "in line with expectations".
